i am a new rn and was asked to give phenergan iv push into already started iv with continuous nss running into a vein in the patient's hand. the patient had been vomiting so oral route wasn't an option. the doctor had already tried zofran (it was not effective) and the patient was refusing compazine, so the doctor wrote an order for phenergan 12.5 mg iv push. i diluted it in 15ml 0.9% ns and pushed the phenergan over 10 min into the iv site in the patient's hand. patient had no complaints of pain, redness
or tenderness. now i am reading about all the complications and starting to worry! i had not been told that phenergan wasn't to be given in hand or wrist veins but now i am reading that this is the case. am i worried for nothing? any advice would be helpful!
